Gender Spectrum Collection (

In 2019, after noticing a scarcity of stock imagery that realistically depicted transgender and non-binary people, VICE’s former identity-focused website Broadly created the Gender Spectrum Collection to help media outlets better show transgender and non-binary people in ways that go beyond clichés. Now, two years later, they are expanding the collection with a brand-new cast, further diversifying our library of free images. All of the photos in the Gender Spectrum Collection were taken by Zackary Drucker and Alyza Enriquez.

Centre for Ageing Better (

Centre for Ageing Better and Disability Rights UK are making the bank of images available today to encourage journalists, organisations, and society to move away from damaging unrepresentative imagery and embrace more realistic depictions of later life and disability.

The library contains positive and authentic images of older and Disabled people – and the intersectionality between the two – getting active. Equally, these photos reinforce the important notion that not all disabilities are visible by including a range of experiences that are often not recognised within society.

Women of Colour in Tech (

If you run a simple search on “Women of Color in Technology” you will notice that there is a huge deficit of images displaying women of color in technology. This does not speak to the multitudes of Black women already in the industry, nor does it help with encouraging the new generation of CS or STEM majors of color. The #WOCinTech Chat stock photo shoot is a project featuring women of color who really work in tech, aiming to improve the representation of all the women who work in tech.
